How to earn badges on the Atlassian Community

You may have visited your profile and seen a tab called badges. (If not, click on your avatar and View profile > Badges will get you there.)  But what do the happy little circles mean, and how do you earn them?

Atlassian Community allows you to work your way up by earning Level badges.  How do you earn these levels?

Level 0: This is your starter badge for joining the Atlassian Community. It's a freebie!

Level 1: Like something. That's it!

Level 2: Post three times

Level 3: Log in multiple times, like content, start at least one discussion, and participate in discussions

Level 4: Same as Level 3, but more

Level 5: Same as Level 4, but more, and also receive likes from others

Level 6: Same as Level 5, but more, and also provide at least one accepted solution

Level 7: Same as Level 6, but more

Level 8: Same as Level 7, but more, and also write at least one article

Level 9: There is no Level 9. OR IS THERE?

@Danny Zuccaro I don't know what you're talking about. Who ever said anything about level 9? 😉

[Lvl 3 Necromancer] I am wondering, which spells are unlocked the next levels ... 

Thanks for adding RPG elements. I would appreciate having more of them. ;)

Go @Timothy go! :) 

@Daniel Eads [non-monitored account] I definitely want to have badges that are specific to product collections -- trying to figure out how to automate that now. I like the Jack badge. :) It would have to be Jack/Jill of all trades, of course 😉

Today I got an email reading "Congratulations! You earned the Level 1 badge".  It had a badge icon, but really no other information.

I like the Gamification concept, but in the spirit of general (hopefully useful?) feedback: modify this email message. I was at a loss as to what that email meant, or what I had done. A quick Google search found this article, but other users may not be as inclined to google reasons they got an email, as I am.  Even including a link to this page in the email would be helpful, to give the reader some insight.

Thanks @JP Seabury -- I completely agree! I've requested to add some explanatory text to the badge page itself (since right now it's just a list of badges but unclear how you can earn them or what they mean) but it's a great idea to add it to the email also. Thanks for the great idea and feedback, and welcome to the community :)

@Monique van den Berg one additional question, how can you earn the AUG member badge by the way? Haven't been able so far :)

Monique van den Berg Community Manager Apr 06, 2018

@Max Foerster [Decadis AG] we have to assign that one manually. I just assigned it to you! Working with AUG teams over the next few months to make this process more smooth :) 

Max Foerster [Decadis AG] Community Leader Apr 06, 2018

@Monique van den Berg thank you a lot for fixing that for me :) and have a great weekend!
